Real Food Menu for Week of 12.01.2019

We kicked off our Thanksgiving Day by participating in one of Roanoke’s most loved and best supported races, the Drumstick Dash. This 5k brings in a significant amount of the Roanoke Rescue Mission’s annual food budget. Mother Nature contributed a side dish of cold weather and gusty winds for race morning; but we Roanokers are a hardy lot and were (mostly) undeterred. Over 10,000 of us got our dash on before partaking in our Thanksgiving meals. What a fun way to start the day!

We’ve had our fill of turkey, football, online shopping, reading and napping, and are ready to get back to our workaday routine, starting with the weekly menu. And, it appears we’re on a bit of a soup kick!

Breakfast:
Blueberry and Raspberry Baked Oatmeal – An old favorite. We make this in the winter using frozen berries.

Dinner:

French Onion Soup

  • Servings: 4-6
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Print

I’ve had this recipe for so long, that I can’t remember where I found it! I substitute gluten-free all-purpose flour for the wheat flour. The key to this rich soup is in caramelizing the onions until they are a deep, golden color. It’s worth every minute in flavor. Serve with crusty bread or sandwiches on the side. We like Brazilian cheese bread or gluten free baguette.

Ingredients

  • 8 brown onions, sliced
  • 1 oz. butter
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 2 T. thyme leaves
  • 2 T. plain, all-purpose flour (I use gluten free)
  • 2 T. brandy
  • 2 T. dijon mustard
  • 8 cups beef stock
  • 2 cups water

Directions

  1. Place the onions, butter, oil and thyme in a large saucepan over medium heat, cover and cook for 35 minutes, stirring occasionally, until soft and golden.
  2. Add the flour and cook, stirring for 3 minutes.
  3. Add the brandy and cook, stirring for 1 minute. Add the mustard, stock and water and allow to simmer for 15 minutes. Ladle the soup into bowls and serve.

Salmon in Roasted Pepper Sauce – Delish! We like it over herbed cauliflower rice, which Aldi carries in the freezer section.

Green Curry of Broccoli Soup – Simple to make and so flavorful.

Weeknight Taco Soup – We’ll lighten it up with ground turkey to make it Mediterranean diet friendly.

Snack:
From time to time we go a little crazy buying produce and we may have done just that this weekend!
Apples, Oranges, Sweet Peppers, Bananas, Grapes, Hummus and Cucumber Slices

Treat:
Coconut Snowballs – No, I’m certainly not hoping for snow, but these goodies would almost make a snowstorm worthwhile. Almost.

Have a great week, everyone!

Real Food Menu for Week of 10.13.2019

Well, if this isn’t the most autumnal menu, I don’t know what is! I think we’ve covered all of the bases with apples, pears, nuts, seeds, pumpkin and even a touch of pumpkin pie spice.

Breakfast:
Pumpkin Seed Granola – New Recipe! This is scrummy! (I feel like I don’t use that word enough in casual conversation.) I sweetened with monk fruit instead of maple syrup. Without the syrup to bind it, my granola didn’t form clusters when baked, but that doesn’t affect the flavor one bit. I added lots of cinnamon (3 tablespoons or so) and a dash of vanilla. Bonus points for making your house smell like pumpkin pie while it’s baking. This would be delicious with diced apples on top.

Bake until it’s golden brown.

Lunch:
Greek Chicken and Rice Bowls – New Recipe! We’ll leave the olives and feta out of Mark’s. The dressing is red, because I used the last of the purple basil from the herb garden. This recipe is a winner!

Prepping lunches before the work week starts makes mornings smoother.

Dinner:

Spicy Pumpkin Chili – New Recipe! So good. I used 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes and one can of kidney beans and black beans. I omitted the chickpeas. We’re not anti-chickpea, I just didn’t have any on hand.

Autumn Pear and Goat Cheese Chicken Salad – New Recipe! Do yourself a favor, and make this salad. It’s amazing. I ran out of goat cheese, so I used parmesan. Delicious!
